Faith No More headed the bill at the Sonisphere metalfest in Getafe near Madrid last night and post-Slayer slayed the large crowd.

Sonisphere website
: “Whether through sobriety, maturity or just a reinvigorated passion for their creation (one that has undoubtedly left a greater legacy on a generation of bands that followed than almost any other), Faith No More looked and sounded the best they ever have. Patton’s earlier stated fears that a reunion would be inappropriate can now be officially laid to rest – this wasn’t nostalgia, it was a truly majestic rock band at the very top of their game.”
Virtual Festivals: “At twenty past midnight, the legend that is Mike Patton stepped onto the stage, itself decorated minimally with just some red drapes, him sporting a dazzling silver suit. His chums had also made an effort to stand out from the black t-shirt & combat shorts hoi paloi, very smartly attired in pinstripe suits with carnations. For a tiny moment, once their welcoming roar had subsided, you could hear a pin drop. And then, for the next hour and a half, they absolutely killed it.”
